Unbelievable the things garages do!! – Paintman I recently bought a genuine Series 3 SWB Land Rover with both dumbirons totally cracked, just behind the front of front spring mount on both sides. What a surprise, the shackle plates had been tightened so tight the springs could not flex as they are supposed to, thus taking out the weakest spot – the fixed end of the spring!! The vehicle was scrapped as a major MOT failure because of someone’s bodging. I even got the invoice from the garage that did it… Amazing things Paintman sees.
